185th Annual General Conference – Sunday Afternoon General Session

Here we go on the last session. It has been good so far, and there have definitely been several talks that really touched me. Obviously we’ll get to hear from Elder Bednar. President Henry B Eyring conducted The Mormon Tabernacle Choir sang Praise the Lord with Heart and Voice Elder Jörg Klebingat offered the invocation […]

185th Annual General Conference – Sunday Morning General Session

The baptism was beautiful this morning. My daughter was thrilled to be baptized and confirmed, and the turnout from the ward was great. The entire service was probably only about 40 minutes long, and then we had some light refreshments until about 11:30. We’re all back at home now to watch the first Sunday session. […]

185th Annual General Conference – Priesthood Session

Tonight we went to the annual “sub-sational”. My brother and his family is visiting for my daughter’s baptism, so he came with my father, my son and me. We had a nice time, but left room for our tradional post-priesthood session trip out. I’m pretty sure we’re going to Boston Pizza again. There were about […]

185th Annual General Conference – Saturday Afternoon General Session

I spent most of the time between sessions watching whatever came on the Mormon Channel. I love watching the World Report and found it interesting (as always). I also cleaned up more around the house in preparation for the family visiting tomorrow after my daughter’s baptism. We’re back in the family room again ready for […]

185th Annual General Conference – Saturday Morning General Session

We had a nice morning. We slept in a bit and after breakfast spent a couple of hours cleaning the house, and then the kids The Mormon Tabernacle Choir sang Press Forward, Saints President Henry B Eyring conducted. He opened by noting the passing of Boyd K Packer, L Tom Perry and Richard G Scott. […]

Making the transition from seminary to institute

One of my responsibilities in our stake is to work with the young single adults, our YSA branch presidency, and the Institute Teacher. One of our biggest challenges is in getting the YSA to attend institute. When you are a youth in the Church, it is generally expected that you will attend seminary. Not everyone goes, […]

184th Semiannual General Conference – Post-conference notes

Well, it’s over. I think my favourite session was the Saturday Afternoon General Session. I mentioned that I had some things that I was hoping to get some inspiration for. I can’t say that I received any particular answers, but I have definitely felt the Spirit, which helps me to have some clarity. I appreciate […]

184th Semiannual General Conference – Sunday Afternoon General Session

In between sessions we finished our Game of Life. Our daughter one, and she was quite excited. The rest of time was spent cleaning up a LEGO bomb that exploded in our playroom in the basement (or at least it looks like LEGO shrapnel everywhere!) Here we go ready for the last session… President Henry […]

184th Semiannual General Conference – Sunday Morning General Session

I’ve said this before, and I’ll say it again… I love General Conference Sunday! Normally I’m up at about 6 am, but this morning I slept past 7, and didn’t get out of bed until after 8. We had a nice breakfast of eggs, waffles, bagels, bacon, and sausage patties, then we played the Game […]

184th Semiannual General Conference – Priesthood Session

My son and I were picked up by my father to go to the Church for the semiannual sub-sational. We enjoyed the food, and it was great seeing my son enjoying himself with the other YM. We then watched the session at the Church. Following the session, we headed to Boston Pizza for some more […]
